The Pessac-Léognan vineyard was established in 2004 with the leasing of Château Pontet Caillou, located next to Domaine de Chevalier’s vines. Its creation was the result of a fortunate encounter between Dominique Haverlan, an enterprising winegrower, and Francis Dumigron, a forester, who wanted to establish a vineyard in the Pessac-Léognan AOC on a plot of pine forest decimated by the 1999 storms.
